Congressman Harper speaks on Initiative to Benefit Children

Congressman Gregg Harper spoke On the Record today about a cause both republicans and democrats are standing behind.

The Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act aims to eliminate tax-payer funding of political conventions. The congressman says many don’t realize that taxpayers are projected to pay $126 million over the next 10 years. With this act, the funds would instead go toward national institutes of health for additional pediatric research. The initiative is named after Gabriella Miller, a young girl who died from cancer.
